No. West End Kids really does encourage strong academic achievement. The business has changed a lot since the days where it was advisable to put all of your eggs into one basket and focus on performing. Today, that is NOT good advice. The chances of securing regular full-time employment are slim, and you must have a good academic back-up. Occasionally we may request a few hours off school for a big performance, but this is the exception rather than the rule.
